After picking you up from Wellington we head north on State Highway 1 passing through the northern suburbs of greater Wellington until reaching our first lookout point at Pukerua Bay overlooking the Kāpiti Coast. 

We then head up Paekākāriki Hill for an even more majestic view over the Kāpiti Coast, Kāpiti Island, the top of the South Island and on a clear day we may see Mt Taranaki/Egmont and Mt Ruapehu. 

We take a visit to Camp McKay at Paekākāriki where the US Marine Corps were based in World War 2 prior to heading up into the Pacific campaign.

We then head to Ngā Manu Nature in Waikanae where we can view Tuataras up close, walk through open native bird aviaries and a nocturnal house where if you are lucky you may see a Kiwi or 2.

We take a scenic drive through the seaside suburbs of Paraparaumu Beach, Raumati Beach and Raumati South to our last stop of the day at a popular café for refreshments before returning to Wellington around 3:00pm.
